SNOW—the word of the week!

The view from my library this week is fantastic! Beautiful! Every imperfection, every weed lay covered with bright, white snow. This weather is rare here in the valley; therefore, it's most appreciated and enjoyed. Thank you, Lord!

He sends the snow like white wool; he scatters frost upon the ground like ashes.” 
          Psalm 147:16

I could sit in the library all day. In fact, I just might. Except I need to go measure the snow again. I used a fifteen-inch wooden ruler. Do you think that's long enough?

As it turned out, I only needed a six-inch ruler. I must have measured the depth every hour with excitement, of course.

Why does snow bring out the child in me?

I grew up in Klamath Falls—snow country. I have memories sledding down Autumn Avenue hill with the neighborhood kids, seeing ice cycles reach down to the ground from our roof, and playing in snow drifts three-feet deep. School was rarely canceled and we kept the tire chains on for weeks.  Someone made snow angels all over the lawn.

Shall we pray for a white Christmas?

Merry Christmas to all !!

Next time we'll talk in January, unless it snows again!

Chocolate will make a great Christmas gift for yourself ! 

Happy Birthdays !!
